“That was her magic, she could still see the sunset, even on those darkest days” Atticus

I feel so grateful to witness nature’s creations each day as a new painting in the sky is born with every sunrise and sunset. I stroll along the shoreline, the sun kissing the horizon bidding it goodnight, with the promise of a new dawn, new opportunities, more magic. My passion and inner joy bubble beneath the surface ready to burst as I bare witness to the overwhelming beauty. I dance ever so lightly along the beach, embodied by my childlike exhilaration, and sense of total freedom to be myself. Aware and present, embracing the moment, my heart beats with the rhythm of the earth and I am home.

I hope you all get some nature time to soak up those magical sunset skies wherever you may be in this wonderful world.

With love and gratitude,

“You carry Mother Earth within you. She is not outside of you. Mother Earth is not just your environment. In that insight of inter-being, it is possible to have real communication with the Earth, which is the highest form of prayer”  Thích Nhat Hanh

There is nothing quite as pure and healing as the feel of soft sand under my bare feet. As I  listen to the rhythmic sound of crashing waves, I can feel the resonating heartbeat of the earth. After days indoors at my computer editing photos, writing, emailing etc, I feel the need and pull for nature more than ever. When we connect with the earth, skin to skin, we are provided with such an abundance of healing energy. Not only do I feel amazing, I’m providing myself with one of the simplest and most inexpensive medicines for my body and soul. Earthing, or earth girl time as I like to call it, has always been one of the most important lifestyle changes I’ve implemented, one I would regularly encourage with my clients during my former career as a Naturopath.

On our recent holiday to Bali, I realised more than ever why I feel so great on holidays. Sure, the no cleaning, cooking thing is a blast, but it’s all that time spent outdoors in nature, swimming, lying in the sand, and of course those long barefoot beach walks. I always have the best sleep of my life too. This was such a treat spending a week frolicking in the turquoise waters of beautiful Uluwatu, made even better wearing my favourite mermaid attire from Billabong’s Fade to White collection + layers of divine Embella Jewellery.

So if you’ve been feeling like you could use a little energy boost, or are dealing with chronic health issues, I encourage you to take even 5-10 minutes each day, kick your shoes off, and relax bare feet on the earth. You will slowly but surely tune into those relaxed, holiday vibes.

Happy barefoot travels gypsies!

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx
